This may be a very stupid question, but basic probability has never been my forte. Is there a mathematical principle which models the following

You flip a coin and tally the values "heads" and "tails" in two columns, call them A and B. At a given flip $\displaystyle n$ define $\displaystyle C(n)=\text{card }A-\text{card }B$. It seems to make sense that $\displaystyle C(n)$ will alternate signs infinitely often.

What is this called?
